Classical and flamenco guitarists do it all the, but I've never seen it done on an electric guitar.


Also, is this video real? Apparently this kid had only been playing for a year when he made this video and a cover of La Crumpenera, and 2:50 is the cleanest tremolo I've ever heard.

i think there are probably 100's of better videos online. you should also be in the techniques forum, its slower over there (not as many posters) but that is where this thread belongs.

I've never seen it done either. That's not to say it's impossible, just that it's not done very often. There's no real reason it can't or shouldn't be done, it's just that the vast majority of electric players aren't even vaguely familiar with classical techniques.

No idea. Looks legit enough on a first look but I didn't watch much or pay that much attention to specifics.

Classical tremolo, 90% or more of those videos will be entirely irrelevant.

Not a girl, it's a young boy.

Did you even click the video?

Hah! Tremolo picking is pretty basic extreme metal technique. Listen a random black metal song from youtube and changes are under the wall of distortion and fizz the 90% of it is built from simple tremolo picked melodies.

Now, this done with finger picking is another story.

Also, what is the TS asking really? What is this thread about?

I saw the embedded video for the first tine and thought that the tremolo picking sounded pretty cool, but the technique looked pretty hard to do on close-spaced electric guitar strings. I was also skeptical about how the kid played only one year before getting recorded

"tremolo" tends to mean something pretty different in rock music.

In classical music it means playing continuous, small subdivisions of an indicated note value. Like if you had a melody E-3---5---7---5, notated as quarter notes, you could indicate a 16th note tremolo and it would sound like E-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5. The note value itself is the same, but you are picking away at a smaller subdivision to get a specific effect

he posted it in GG&A assumed it was an electric. i thought he was just showing a very impressive video.

i took it as tremolo picking on the guitar which is used quite frequently

How is that any different from a death metal song using tremolo?

TS: Are you speaking of simply the effect or it being done in that style?

Unless you are thinking about playing with tremolo bar no its the exact same thing. IE youtube Satyricon - Mother North. That song is exactly what I described, 90% relentless tremolo picking minus for the slow part in the middle.

... Why is everyone in here still talking about anything other than the physical process of classical tremolo?

Seriously, what TS is talking about isn't exactly unclear if you actually pay attention. I know I can't help with it but it doesn't look like any of you can either so what the hell are you all still talking for?

Because its NOT clear what he is asking about in the first post. Just wondering if tremolo is done with electric guitars and opinions about the kids playing.

He would do well to edit it and add his actual question about classical tremolo (done with fingers it looks?) because a lot of people WILL miss the last sentences of his second post.

I just noticed this post in which he clarifies it. The botched quote threw me off, sorry.
